    Creating and managing alerts for all the users manually is cumbersome. Support for Distribution list would be wonderful.

    I 100% agree. The Contact List Connect to Outlook feature is great because now people can update the Distribution lists themselves; however, we should be able to use the Contact list/Distribution list to send Alerts for items posted. This then fully takes us out of email. I am going to try to use a workaround by either sending the alert to myself with a rule that then forwards it to the Distribution group or create a Security group but a lot of workaround for features that should just be compatible.
